Tunes & Tales: Back Home

I'm going to be indulging my nostalgia for the days when I was crazy about my favorite boy bands. (To be honest, I'm still loving all of them, possibly even more so than ever before.) One of my favorite bands was Westlife, who are sadly no longer together now. I absolutely adored all of their albums, and I'm lucky enough to be able to say that they were the first ever band I went to see in concert when I was about thirteen! Anyway, one of my favorite albums from them was Back Home. It was the album I listened to constantly in my college years, as well as the one that inspired a ton of my fan fiction about the band.

VIBE: boy band pop songs (What's not to love?)
WHY: I just love my boy bands, okay?
TRY: Catch My Breath and Something Right are all-time faves.

May be surrounded by a million people
I still feel all alone
I just wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know [...]
Let me go home
I've had my run
Baby, I'm done
I wanna go home

Us Against the World / The Burning Sky
We're not gonna break
'Cause we both still believe
We know what we've got
And we've got what we need
We're doing something right
'Cause it's us against the world
You and me against them all
If you're listening to these words
Know that we are standing tall

Something Right / Out on Good Behavior
If you want me
I must be doing something right
I've got nothing left to prove
And it's all because of you
So, if you need me
And baby, I make you feel alive
I know I must be doing, doing something right

I'm Already There / P.S. I Love You
Wish I was in your arms
Lying right there beside you
But I know that I'll be in your dreams tonight
And I'll gently kiss your lips
Touch you with my fingertips
So turn out the lights, and close your eyes
I'm already there
Don't make a sound
I'm the beat in your heart
I'm the moonlight shining down
I'm the whisper in the wind
And I'll be there till the end
Can you feel the love that we share?
Oh, I'm already there

When I'm With You / Hidden Huntress
I don't wanna face this world alone
(Without you by my side)
You're the only one that makes it feel like home
(And I need you in my life)
When I'm not around, I'm feeling like a piece of me is missing
When it feels like the day is closing in,
Somehow I find the faith to make it through
When I'm with you

Have You Ever / Tied to Trouble
Have you ever been in love, been in love so bad?
You would do anything to make them understand.
Have you ever had someone steal your heart away? 
You would give anything to make them feel the same.
Have you ever searched for words to get you in their heart? 
But you don't know what to say and you don't know where to start
Have you ever loved somebody so much it makes you cry?
Have you ever needed something so bad you can't sleep at night?
Have you ever tried to find the words but they don't come out right?
Have you ever? Have you ever?

It's You / The Deal
'Cause when your hands are in mine
You set a fire that everyone can see
And it's burning away
Every bad memory
To tell you the truth, if it's something new
Baby, it's you

Catch My Breath / Make It Last
We were still in high school
When I first met you
Even then you were the prettiest girl
That I ever knew
And we carved our name on everything
That we could find the way that all kids do
And although time has passed,
I still get surprised
At the pulling in my chest
When I know you're coming by
If this feeling's proving anything
It's not everything is gonna change with time
You're still mine

The Easy Way / Racing Savannah
Listen girl
Just let me talk to you
I just wanna be with you
So why should I play it cool?
You and me
We've got a chemistry [...]
I'm gonna come right out and say it, girl
I love you
I love you
What's wrong with saying it the easy way?

I Do / The Wedding
I'm ready to begin this journey
I'm with you with every step you take
And we've got a whole lifetime to share
And I'll always be there
Darling, this I swear
So please, believe me
For these words I say are true
And don't deny me a lifetime loving you
If you ask, will I be true?
Do I give my all to you?
Then I will say I do

Pictures in My Head / Brown-Eyed Girl
Thank you for tomorrow when you're gonna call me
Thank you for the weekend when you're gonna see me
Thank you for the memories we haven't made yet [...]
I can see me looking at you
At the start of the day for all my life
I can see me dying to hold you
On the way when I'm driving home at night
I've got these pictures in my head

You Must Have Had a Broken Heart / One True Loves
You seem to have that certain smile
I can't forget after a while
The day you walked into the room
At once I knew the hurt that you'd been through
You must have had a broken heart
To love me the way you do
Must have been so torn apart
I can see it when I look at you
